Takeaway Tweets & Transcript from #CampusChat with Kaplan Test Prep

Would you friend a College Admissions Officer?

I'm hard-pressed to pick the best takeaway tweet from Wednesday night's CampusChat on June 15, 2011. Led by guest, Eitan Dantzig, online college admissions expert, at Kaplan Test Prep, many of us were surprised by stats related to Facebook friend requests and college admissions, as well as the amount of scholarship dollars that go unclaimed due to lack participation by the college-bound audience.

Here are two tweets that addresssed these topics:
